katycloud Posted August 22, 2011 Share Posted August 22, 2011 So I've posted in here before about moving out etc. I am 23 years old and have a full-time job as a primary school teacher, in a 5 year relationship with my boyfriend. I live at home and he lives with friends. We were planning on moving out together, however his plans changed and he re-signed onto his lease with his friends, which means we can't move out together until May of next year. In the meantime, one of my female friends who I've known for about 11 years asked me to move in with her. She just broke up with her boyfriend and so needs to find a housemate asap, and asked if I would move in with her for 10 months until I can move out with my boyfriend next May. I'm not sure what to do I'm so torn. I really want to move out, I hate living with my parents and I feel trapped here (see my other posts). But at the same time, I can't help thinking about the cons of moving out with her. Basically, pros - Independence, not feeling trapped by living here with my parents, not fighting with my mother every day. - Will live closer to my boyfriend. - Will live slightly closer to my workplace. - Will be a fun learning/life experience? Cons - Will not be able to save as much due to paying more rent/living expenses than at home. - Will miss my family pet dog and possibly miss my family... - May not get along with female friend as a housemate?! I don't know... - Will know that I will have to move all of my stuff again 10 months... I'm just not sure what I should do. I really want to move out but I would rather it be with my boyfriend, but should I take this opportunity, will it be a fun learning experience? Or will I regret it/ feel homesick. I wouldn't feel homesick if I lived with my boyfriend because he IS home to me, but being away from my family AND my boyfriend might be too much... I honestly don't know because I have never lived away from home! I just feel so torn and I don't want to break her heart by saying no because she's got her hopes so high. And I also don't want to break her heart if I say no. I'm honestly torn. Link to comment
